大肠包小肠 – Taipei, Taiwan


This is the first Taiwanese food that I ate when I was in Taipei. It’s a common snack in Taipei and this one has 3 outlets in Taipei alone… maybe more now :). 大肠包小肠 literally means big sausage wrap small sausage… But it’s actually a pork sausage wrapped with a sausage-shaped glutinous rice thingy.

I followed the BBQ aroma from just outside the ground floor of my hotel, and found this little stall in the middle of a small alley. The stall owner boast the sausages are made from wild boars from Wulai (乌来) which is several miles south of Taipei. Claims to be aboriginal food also but I doubt it and ruled it as more of a gimmick than anything else. I’m a fan of Taiwanese sausages so I ordered one with the black pepper topping option.

The little stall with many people queuing around it.

The rice roll is too small for the sausage but I'm not complaining... haha...

Rating: 4/5.

Taste: The Taiwanese sausages back home in Singapore taste different from the ones in Taiwan. The rice is tasteless but sausage is pretty ok.

Portion: Quite generous with the toppings.

Price: TWD50 for one sausage with the rice roll. Buy 10 get 1 free. Sausage only is TWD35 each, buy 3 for TWD100.

RTE: It’s a snack, so easy to just walk past, grab one and gobble down!
